Getting Started with Plugins

Nx plugins contain generators and executors that extend the capabilities of an Nx workspace. They can be shared as npm packages or referenced locally within the same repo.

Use a Plugin

Nx plugins help you scaffold new projects, pre-configure tooling, follow best practices, and modularize your codebase.

Create a Local Plugin

Local plugins allow you to automate repository specific tasks and enforce best practices (e.g., generating projects or components, running third-party tools).

Maintain a Published Plugin

If your plugin has functionality that would be useful in more than just your repo, you can publish it to npm and register it on the site for others to find.

Advanced Plugins

You can also hook into the way Nx works and modify it to suit your needs
